Both towns are similar sizes.
Both have similar job markets I would guess, perhaps Beeville's is a bit better since there is more oil/gas work and you can commute to either Kenedy/Karnes City or Corpus if you had to.
Beeville is near the beach, the land is actually green and pretty, Uvalde is more dry but at the footsteps of the hill country, it is also pretty with a lot of trees. Both are in south Texas.
Both are pretty country, both have majority hispanic/mexican populations.
Both seem pretty conservative and Catholic/Christian.
Both counties went Trump.
Both are somewhat high on crime for small towns, although compared to any city in America I believe they are much safer.
Which would you prefer to live in?

I've never been to either, but I'll share my little stories...

My boss is from Robstown. When he vacations, he likes to wind down and often goes to the Uvalde area.

In college, I had a roommate from Alice. Nice guy, but without going into detail, I'd say he was a bit rough around the edges. He said he avoided Beeville at all costs.
